ArmaLaser | SHOT 2017



ArmaLaser laser units deliver the targeting aid that shooters have grown to expect, but the activation will surprise. A simple touch, automatic when drawing and holding the gun, activates the laser. All Armalaser models turn on by human touch, not by a mechanical switch or button. As soon as the shooter grasps the pistol, the True-Touch Activation sensor will turn the laser on and keep it on as long as they are grasping the grip. Located where the middle finger naturally rests, activation is seamless and immediate, requiring no button to be pushed or secondary operation.

The TR series ArmaLasers are custom-fitted to a variety of pistol models, and the sensor is built in to the unit’s trigger guard. The GTO/FLX series ArmaLasers fit onto any standard pistol rail and come with a finger touch adapter that acts as an on-off switch on the unit similar to standard lasers. However, the FLX sensor is a tape-like switch barely thicker than a human hair. The FLX places the touch sensor below the pistol’s trigger guard for natural contact with the shooter’s middle finger when the gun is grasped.

ArmaLasers are available in both red and green. Red ArmaLasers retail for $118.75 while green models retail for $178.75.

    Is that a physical button or a circuit your flesh completes?

    That’s a really cool design and the pricing is reasonable. If these perform well and are practically durable for carry, I’d pick one up.

      Cheaper than crimson trace which has had the lock on this market for years.

  • TechnoTriticale

    Requires bare hand or conductive gloves?

  • Kevin Craig

    Inductive? Does it work with gloves?

    Pretty innovative. It is cheaper than Crimson Trace which has pretty much dominated this market for several years.
